With the summer holiday season fast approaching, Richard Sibley tests Canon’s latest travel compact camera that features a 20x optical zoom, full HD movies and GPS.
Launched earlier this year, the PowerShot SX260 HS is the latest travel zoom compact camera from Canon. The extreme focal lengths of these compact cameras make them an affordable alternative to a DSLR, and perfect for holidaymakers who don’t want to lug around a system camera on their travels.
